Valencia have targeted Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez as a replacement for Tottenham bound Roberto Soldado, the Daily Express reports.

Spurs are thought to be closing in on the prolific Soldado, with the clubs technical director Franco Baldini in Spain to conduct negotiations with Valencia over the transfer.

The clubs president Amadeo Salvo said last night that Soldado won’t be sold for less than £25 million but many at the club are already resigned to losing the striker and a list of possible replacements has already been drawn up.

At the top of that list is Javier Hernandez, who has been impressive for Manchester United during his three years at the club.

However, the Mexican has struggled to start games for United and Valencia may try and persuade him to leave Old Trafford with the promise of first team football.

However, the players agent recently said that the striker is happy at the Red Devils and with the on going uncertainty over Wayne Rooney’s future, Hernandez is unlikely to be allowed to leave Manchester.

With this in mind, the Spanish club are also looking into signing Brazilian pair Learndo Damiao and Fred, who are both set to be a part of Brazil’s squad for next summers World Cup.
